We opened Curves Irvine on the 1st of February 2016.
Our current membership is 605 & that has been the highest membership we have ever achieved in the 27 months we have been open.
Opening day we signed up 100 new members in the first day and at the end of week one we had 200 new members.
By August 2016 we had reached 500 members.
I have worked for Curves since I was 19 (now 31) firstly starting off as a circuit coach, progressing to manager of one club & then area manager for 3 locations. During that time I completely fell in love with everything that Curves embodies, I have a true passion for helping women to achieve their fullest potential.
After 10 years working for another owner i decided that I was ready to take on my own club & I have never looked back.
My husband and I found a location in our own community in November 2015 & with a lot of support from Curves on the sale of the Territory we were able to open just 3 short months later.
As I mentioned above I have always had a passion for helping women but when you get to do this in your own community with women you know the level of job satisfaction is increased ten fold!
I believe that Curves is way more than just a gym, we are a community of support for our members, no two days are the same & you are able to push yourself and members to new levels each and every day.
Most days I don’t even feel like I’m at work, that doesn’t mean I don’t work hard though, it simply means I love what I do. For this kind of job you really must love what you do for it to be a success. You’ve got to live and breath it every second & with any business you have to but in the hours, develop yourself and your team & make sure you provide a service no where else can.
If you are thinking about opening a Curves franchise I would say go for it, the rewards every single day are out if this works but be prepared to work very hard for them.
